Chennai Central, Chennai Reviews

  • Giving it four stars because its restaurant service is not up to the mark. But this is a giant station. Much more platforms. Rest rooms, water supply is very nice. But want to say that it is very crowded usually.. But it is too hot.. Too much warm... But it is a nice one..

  • Biggest station in Chennai and little older too. All long journey are available here. But restaurant are not so good and very few sitting place is available here. I like this station because it much safer than other stations in India. I prefer this station because I got my train for my native from this station. It's always crowded and maintenance is also not good here.

  • Nice Railway Station. One of the main Railway Station in southern India. It is relatively clean station. Accesability is there we can get buses taxis just outside. One good thing is that you don't need to climb up and down to come out of station.

  • CC station is well maintained but it has to be little organised since it is one of the main stations of south India. Availability of food and snacks at station is good with reasonable price. Station is looking little messy. Overall it is fine.

  • Big station. Usually crowded. But it has a very big waiting hall. Well connected. Easily accessible via local trains or buses. Good restaurants. Clean and well maintained rest rooms. Keep your things safe. Beware of pickpockets. People here may mislead you. So refer only with people you find reliable.
